The receiver is a once-through monotube boiler designed for steam/electric and process steam applications at pressures up to 17.24 MPa (2500 psia) and temperatures up to 704 C (1300 F). The unit is 76.2 cm (30.0 in.) in diameter and 95.8 cm (37.7 in.) in length; it weighs 220 kg (485 lb). Its heat transfer surface, which is 45.7 cm (18 in.) in diameter by 57 cm (22.4 in.) long, is an Inconel 625, cylindrical, tube-coil assembly composed of primary and reheat sections. A test unit was successfully operated at up to 6.9 MPa (1000 psia) and 704 C (1300 F) with solar input from a 11-m-dia parabolic dish concentrator.
